INCREDIBLY INTUITIVE INTERFACE

WE BELIEVE IN SIMPLE, CLEAR INTERFACES, AND PADS EXEMPLIFIES THIS PHILOSOPHY. CHECK OUT OUR DEEPDIVE ON THE INTERFACE AND FEATURES OF PADS.

LAYERS

PADS has two layers of sound sources. The same 80 sources are available on both layers and you can mix and match as you need to. 

Layer Controls are conveniently located below and all the other options are exactly where you’d expect them to be. It doesn't get simpler to start creating your very own Pad textures!

LAYERS SECTION

MODULATORS

PADS has 3 Modulators, each of which can be an Envelope, LFO or Sequencer.  

Each of these Mod Sources can be assigned to a variety of Layer and Global Parameters for an extensive array of modulation possibilities.

MODULATORS SECTION

SEQUENCER ZOOM

If you thought that tiny sequencer window would be a real pain while you tweak 32 step rhythms late into the night, worry not, we’ve got you covered - Zoom in to make finer adjustments. 

The best part is that our sequencer doesn't take up extra screen real estate, and PADS remains as compact as ever within your Kontakt instrument window.

SEQUENCER ZOOM SECTION

ESSENTIAL EFFECTS INCLUDED

The Effects section within PADS is well streamlined to help you add just the right amount of additional processing to your pad sounds. There are a total of 7 Effects with a limited set of parameters for every effect to keep things simple, yet powerful.

EFFECTS SECTION

UNIFIED DESIGN LANGUAGE

All of Umlaut Audio’s instruments are designed with a consistent design language in mind. For instance, the FX Icons are abstractions that help you visualise the effect. One of the many unique design touches we add to our instruments. 

We’ve created an entire family of instruments that complement each other with ARPS, PADS and uBEAT.  Read more about our design philosophy here.

ICON LANGUAGE

NKS INTEGRATION

All of our flagship instruments are designed to take full advantage of the NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD. 

NKS allows you to use ARPS like any other Native Instruments library, accessing snapshots, integrating with NI Hardware and most importantly, automatically setting up the most optimum mappings on Komplete Kontrol devices for you to dive right in to your creative flow. Learn more about NKS HERE

PONTANEOUS CREATION. SIMPLIFIED.

ARPS STAYS TRUE TO ITS SIMPLE ROOTS. IN ESSENCE, IT IS AN ARPEGGIATOR FOR SAMPLES, BUT THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING.

INSTRUMENTS

The ARPS Instrument package comes with 4 individual instruments - KICKS, MIDS, PERCS and TICKS. Each of these contain a full range of unique samples unified by category, and share the same arpeggiator functions and Effect Controls. 

The overall footprint on your RAM for each instrument is really small, so you can easily combine multiple instances of each of the ARPS instruments to dish out exciting rhythms in no time.

GUI

ARPEGGIATOR

This is where the ARPS magic happens. Hold down any number of notes on the keyboard, set the Arpeggiator to latch, and you're ready to get ARPSolutely delighted. 

The arpeggiator consists of basic controls such as latch, steps, rate, release, swing, octave, repeat and playback modes with a step sequencer for Volume. Tweaking any of these parameters on the fly can result in dramatically different, interesting and useful results.

GUI

FX SECTION

The Effects section within ARPS is constructed to help you transmit extra processing to your rhythmic patterns. There are a total of 7 Effects with a limited set of parameters per effect to keep things simple, yet powerful.
